Emirates Printing Press in Dubai has been awarded the 2009 CIP4 international Print Production Innovation (CIPPI) Award at Print 09 in Chicago.

Only eight companies in the world received the awards this year which are given annually to the printer, publisher or prepress service who applies with the most compelling case study in three topical categories and four regions.

The Dubai-based Emirates Printing Press was awarded the Best Process Automation Implementation- Emerging Markets award.

It said that the new digital Connex workflow system from Muller Martini and Technique MIS played a significant role in the nomination.

According to EPP’s CEO, Mohamed Abdulla Al Shirawi: “We can process CIP4/JDP data simply and easily, especially for repeat jobs. The Connex not only helps us to avoid duplication of data entry work. It also reduced the error rate, thereby saving time and money.”
